Sabrina Roth, PhD student from the University of Stockholm, is conducting a research stay at IMDEA Water until the end of June 2021.
Sabrina collaborates in ECORISK2050, a Europe wide project funded by the European Union in the framework of the H2020 Marie Sklodowska Curie Action – Innovative Training Networks. We will analyse and address risks of chemicals of emerging concern in water, focusing on scenarios up to 2050.
Who are you? Where do you come from? What is your background?
I am from Germany and I am studying my PhD at the University of Stockholm, Sweden. I came to IMDEA Agua to carry out experiments in the microcosms of the EcoTox laboratory.
What does your research consist of?
My PhD focuses on the effects of mixtures of chemicals, especially combined with other stress factors such as, for example, temperature under climate change conditions.
Why did you choose IMDEA Water? How long did you stay?
I wanted to carry out microcosm tests with temperature and chemical treatments and this facility did not exist at Stockholm University. I chose to come here for that reason and to make use of the knowledge and experience of IMDEA Water. I have here since March, and I will stay until the end of June 2021.
To what extent has this stay helped with your research? Have you collaborated with other researchers at IMDEA Water?
Carrying out the experiments here at IMDEA Water has allowed me to develop part of my doctoral thesis. I have learned a lot during my stay at IMDEA Agua and have really enjoyed it. The work environment is pleasant and I hope to return in the future.
